I have been working as a guide since I was in high school. I started as an assistant guide for cruise ship tourists and have been working as a tour guide for 20 years now.
I am passionate about travelling and communicating with people from all different cultures. I am a friendly and cheerful person and treat my clients as if they were my friends. I like to give interesting insights of Estonian life, therefore instead of having a monologue-type observation of the city, you will enter into friendly discussion and learn about the country through local eyes.
As for languages, I provide tours in English and Estonian. I can offer different tours in Tallinn: Old Town walking tours, city tours, round trips and also a Soviet Legacy tour where I show the remains of Soviet heritage in Tallinn. I have also tour options that are suitable for families with children and well as people who wish to experience the nature and beautiful countryside of Estonia.
Over the years I have developed some fantastic connections with my clients, such as the Canadian Embassy in Tallinn. We have a mutual appreciation of high professionalism and flexibility. I have hosted groups and individuals from ministers during official engagements to private guests in town for a visit.
I will humbly add the thoughts of one of my clients:
"Eva Maria was WONDERFUL!! I will definitely recommend her services and plan to do so again in the future!! If you are wondering who to book with. . . you found it - Eva Maria!
Great personality, EXTREMELY WELL educated and will NOT steer you wrong! Well educated on the history, including humorous myths/thoughts. There wasn't a single question that "stumped" her (and we tried :-) ). I couldn't have asked for more!!! Thank you!"
A Recent Review of this guide
Eva-Maria did a FABULOUS job. The rain, wind, and cold couldn't stop us from enjoying a full 5 hour walking tour. Little driving was done so we got from point A to point B faster. She kept our attention at bay ,and our minds wondering and then our appetites feed with an AMAZING lunch. The atmosphere where we ate was eventful, and the food was YUM... So as you can tell all 5 of us enjoyed ourselves very much, and could have stayed longer. Thank you for an amazing time even with the cold weather...
